Vanessa and Zory Ana Dupree, granddaughters of Jan Morse, spent the night.

They played games and painted.

On Saturday they all went to “Christmas in Mexico.”

The girls enjoyed making a gingerbread house and then went to the Mexico Public Library for the snack and storytelling.

The girls each took out some books.

They liked the shopping too.

They also had fun on the trolley car ride and the horse-drawn wagon ride.

Then they visited with Santa and frosted cookies and enjoyed them with hot chocolate.

They all had their faces painted.

They had such a wonderful fun day together.

The memory tree lights will be lit in remembrance of your special loved one.

The price is $10 per name per light.

The Holiday Christmas wreath is $20 per grave.

A grave easel is provided. In the spring, it is removed.

Please be sure and give us the full name or names where you wish the wreath placed.

Zorry Ana Dupree, granddaughter of Jan Morse, spent the night.  They played games and colored.  On Saturday they went to watch a movie.  A fun time together.

Many thanks to  Evie Degraw for her generous donation of a Christmas Tree for the gazebo.

The lighted tree certainly makes a beautiful addition to the four corners.

Also thanks to the good samaritans for their assistance in helping hang the wreaths at the gazebo and at the Route 81 northbound Parish exit.
